Tim Ferriss’s talk about deep breathing and its effects on focus and stress inspired us to get into the science of it. We developed an app based on his approach to find out what kind of breathing works and what does not
We are three software engineering students, who got interested in the scientific background of breathing. We tried various breathing techniques, including Wim Hof, and got most excited about the Heart Rate Variability & Breathwork training to improve focus and lowering stress and anxiety – mainly because of its **scientific evidence**. We found out about it through [this](https://youtu.be/4r6gr7uytQA?t=793) episode of Tim Ferris Show.
We based our approach on a [medical protocol](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/289937389_Protocol_for_Heart_Rate_Variability_Biofeedback_Training) done in expensive clinics – Tim uses the same approach. Heart Rate Variability training addresses the autonomous nervous system and helps you ideally strengthen it by **finding the optimal breathing frequency individual for you**.
We’ve been working on it for the last year and are planning to launch our beta soon, now we are looking for beta testers.
